Scholarships and bursaries

We offer scholarships and bursaries to ambitious, talented young students. We also offer bursaries to those students that have financial challenges.

The scholarships are partial offers, up to 50% and for MBA up to 75%, towards to cost of study, intended to support committed students to start or complete their higher education.

Full scholarships may only be awarded under special circumstances. Eligible candidates have to prove their need and eligibility for the scholarship or bursary by providing essential information to support their application.

Scholarships will also be awarded for excellent academic performers:

– First or Second Class Upper degree at Bachelors level

– passing the GAT with at least 55%

– for VUU continuing students: passing the most recent course with at least 65%.

The scholarship may also be awarded to a competitive student who designs the best project that provides the most innovative solution to an existing problem. Calls for such projects are made to VUU students from time to time.

The scholarship may also be awarded to students whose research, undertaken as part of coursework or the final project, is deemed worthy of such an award.

The scholarship may also be awarded to all applicants of selected new programmes.

It will also be awarded to applicants who are employees of partner institutions such as District local governments, NGOs, business companies etc with which VUU has a standing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for such support.
